    Since we are using the same Google ID for many Google’s applications, why do we need to delete it? But at least we should know the option of doing it, right?

    That’s if we don’t have any outstanding payments due in Adwords or from Adsense.

    I have a Google account set as my homepage and to access it I have to sign in. All of a sudden when I log in a window pops up that reads…… Internet Explorer cannot open the internet site ….operation aborted.
    The only way I can get out of it is to type in so I can get out of it. I have tried everything possible & have even had my Dell support try to help & nothing has helped. I cannot delete it because I cannot open it. Has anyone ever had that problem before. I am about ready to throw the darn thing out the window? I thought if I could delete it & start over I could get rid of the problem. I cannot afford telephone support because it would cost me a fortune. Any help would certainly be appreciated.
